39 Steps star Robert Donat takes a dual role as both the ghost of an 18th-century laird and his 20th-century descendant in this witty, delightfully whimsical romantic comedy.

It is featured here in a brand-new transfer from the original film elements in its as-exhibited aspect ratio. Donald Glourie shares... his crumbling ancestral home with the ghost of his Highland ancestor, Murdoch, who has been condemned to haunt the castle until he avenges a 200-year-old insult from a rival clan. To clear his mounting debts, Donald sells the dilapidated pile to an American businessman, Mr Martin, who has the castle complete with the Glourie ghost transported and rebuilt in Florida.
